“On the high yak & yeti trail towards the giant peaks of Khumbu.”

The Everest region is one of the most popular and spectacular destinations in Nepal, for trekkers and mountaineers alike. It offers a fascinating and enjoyable environment. This trek begins with a scenic flight to Lukla. It passes through many traditional farming villages, with beautiful views of the highest snow-capped peaks in the world, and continues on to Kalapatthar, the highest point of the trek, for a breathtaking panorama of peaks and glaciers, including Mt. Everest, which seems only a stone’s throw away. The Everest Base Camp itinerary is set to be flexible, enabling you to enjoy and immerse yourself in the magnificent natural surroundings. The trip includes all the highlights of Sagarmatha National Park, including Namche Bazaar, Khumbu, which is the Sherpa capital, an unmatched view from Kalapatthar (5,545 m.), and the ever-exciting Everest Base Camp, which is an extraordinary viewpoint for Nuptse, Everest, and Lhotse. This trek gives ample time and opportunity to visit Buddhist monasteries, both at Khumjung, one of the oldest in the area, and at Thyangboche, one of the newest, as it was rebuilt after being burned to the ground.
